Gigabyte GTX580 Super Overclock Review

Mafia 2 and Witcher 2

Gigabyte GTX580 Super Overclock Review

Mafia 2

The GTX570 is so good we use it as the main GPU in our CPU and motherboard test rigs, and it's about the best value price/performance card around. It's some mark of how good the GTX580SOC is that in Mafia 2 it's 60% better than the GTX570. In fact it's so good that it's knocking on the door of the HD6990.

The Witcher 2

Gaining 6FPS in The Witcher 2 might seem like a small gain, but when you consider it's only 19 frames behind the mighty MARS 2 it starts to put things into perspective. Make no mistake, The Witcher 2 is fearsomely tough on graphics cards, but the GTX580 makes a seriously good stab at it.

Impressive card. I must admit that Gigabyte is becoming my favourite brand. Would love to have two of these in sli. Will probably cost around 800£ for two of these

Actually two costs 946£. Gotta love the prizes in Norway Quote

Gigabyte need to scrap the blue PCB though it looks nasty to me, black PCB FTW Quote

This is a great card. I don't mind blue PCB, but I do agree that matte black PCB is still the best looking. I wonder how the 3GB versions will perform? Quote
